Was Miller Poll punking for Luap Nor?
From the time in question you just have to wonder if he got caught Ron Paul poll punking while working for the government.
Former Fairbanks North Star Borough Mayor Jim Whitaker, who was Miller’s boss, said last week that Miller used borough computers for political purposes in 2008 when he organized a failed effort to oust state Republican Party Chairman Randy Ruedrich. Whitaker said Miller was disciplined for the violation of the borough’s ethics code but was not fired because he was part of a legal team that was in the middle of a case over how much to tax the trans-Alaska oil pipeline.
Miller did not provide details on CNN of what exactly he’d done to be disciplined, and Miller’s campaign refused interview requests from the Daily News to discuss it. Miller e-mailed a statement saying “the incident had nothing to do with my departure from the Fairbanks North Star Borough nearly a year and a half later. My statement on CNN is accurate.”
Whitaker, the former Fairbanks borough mayor, has said that Miller resigned in September 2009 right before he was to be fired. Whitaker said he didn’t know why Miller was about to be fired at that point and that the borough attorney had the discretion to let him go. Borough Attorney Rene Broker has said she is not able to discuss the matter.
Miller told CNN that the incident happened over his lunch hour. He described it as a petty issue that’s come out as a result of a “real effort here in Alaska to basically take away from the Alaskan voter the opportunity to see the issues that are before them … they aren’t things that have anything to do with where we are as a state.”
